Grown Ups by Marian Keyes: Marian Keyes is beloved by many readers – and this may be one of her best books yet. It’s the story of a sprawling Irish family who take every opportunity to spend time together – so it’s a real shock when, after suffering a concussion, one of them delivers some tough home truths during a dinner party. Done with her usual warmth and wit and insight, this is called Grown Ups by Marian Keyes.

The Foundling by Stacey Halls: In 1747, a young woman gives birth to an illegitimate daughter whom she can’t afford to keep and leaves her at a hospital for foundlings. After six years she tries to reclaim her child but finds that an imposter pretending to be her uplifted the baby all those years ago, and so the search to find the now six year old begins. This is terrific, moving historical fiction.
